    Traveling to Nassau and have 1 day. Can someone let me know if Blue Lagoon or Balmoral is a better dolphin/day trip?

    Ahoy, Joshua!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Ooo, it sounds like you're getting ready to set sail on a Bahamian adventure! Traveling to the Bahamas is one of my favorite itineraries Disney Cruise Line has to offer! Not only do I love the turquoise-blue waters, but I especially love visiting Disney's private island, Castaway Cay!

    It's so tough selecting which Port Adventure to take during your one-day visit in Nassau when there are so many exciting ones to choose from! If you're looking for a FINtastic time swimming with dolphins, I highly recommend the Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Swim. Plus, if you're able to book the 9:30 AM departure once your advance booking window opens, you will have the opportunity to stay on Blue Lagoon Island after your dolphin swim and take a later ferry back to the cruise ship!

    If a day at the beach is what your pirate crew has their hearts set on, you won't go wrong choosing either Blue Lagoon Island Beach Day or Balmoral Private Island Beach Day. Both offer you gorgeous sand beaches and crystal clear water. When we visited the beaches at Blue Lagoon Island, they had something called the Family Adventure Club offering activities for kids and their families. It was fun for the kids to participate in activities while spending the day on the beach! We also enjoyed visiting the marine habitat and gift shops.

    Joshua, I hope you have a blast continuing to plan for your upcoming Disney Cruise!
